Bruges, Belgium Travel Guide Last Updated: Jan 2022

Among Europe’s best-preserved medieval cities, Bruges is small, historic, and gorgeous. Having been built around the same time, Bruges looks a lot like a smaller and much calmer Amsterdam. If you’ve only got time for one I’d choose Amsterdam, but hopefully you’ve got time for both.
